I Looked Up (Elektra EKS 2469 002, . LP: EKS-74061) is the sixth album by the Incredible String Band. Recorded at a time when the band was busy rehearsing for their ambitious upcoming stage show, U, the album has been described by band member Robin Williamson as a "quickie" album. Recording of the album came just 5 months after Changing Horses. Like its predecessor, the album included six tracks with two compositions exceeding 10 minutes.

The Incredible String Band is the debut album by the band of the same name, released in Britain in 1966 by record label Elektra. It is the only one of the band's albums to feature the original trio line-up with Clive Palmer, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron. The trio had been signed to Elektra Records by Joe Boyd, who had seen them play in Glasgow. They recorded the album at the Sound Techniques studio in Chelsea, London in one afternoon in May 1966, with Boyd as producer

I Looked Up points fairly directly at the arguably self-indulgent side of the Incredible String Band (ISB) that had surfaced since the collective began congregating around Scientology in 1968. This incarnation of the ISB centered around the core unit of Mike Heron (cal), Robin Williamson (gimbri), and their respective girlfriends Rose Simpson (violin/bass/vocals), and Christina Licorice McKechnie (vocals).
